Peter Thonis: Power List 2011

CCO, Verizon

Verizon was finally able to start getting a share of the lucrative iPhone telecommunications connection market in 2011 when AT&T's exclusive arrangement ended, thus starting a concerted communications war between the two carriers.

The high-profile telecoms company's head of communications Peter Thonis has been in the business for more than a quarter of a century, working on blue-chip brands such as IBM and GTE before joining Verizon. However, he still displays the passion and appetite for hard work that all of our Power Listers do, particularly in the burgeoning social media sphere that is so key to modern communications, especially for technology brands.

Thonis has received various industry accolades throughout his 25-year career, including the IABC Communicator of the Year Award in late 2010.
